Opened up Tweetdeck at 4:30 on Tuesday and saw this string of Tweets in my “Mets Beatwriter” column.
And the clarification moments later.
As far as a 40-man roster move, that’s relatively close to a formality. The Mets have 39 players on the 40-man now so they have space to add a player. Once they are full, they could also simply shift Tim Byrdak or even Santana himself from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL without exposing anyone else to waivers.
